I’m a guy. A trans guy, but I am still a guy. However, I am far from your typical guy (both trans* and cis).

I often joke that my gender is peacock, because that is how I feel most of the time. A male peacock is the perfect descriptor for me. I’m flashy, loud, outspoken, opinionated, brightly colored, and love being the center of attention. While my gender occasionally does fluctuate, it always has the basis of male. I’ve always seen my body and identity as having a male base to build off of, despite being Female Assigned At Birth – or FAAB, which is a perfect acronym for me.
I am no less trans*, a man, or anything else for being a peacock.

What’s your experience?

And what are you thinking about gender right now?

    It is currently broken because the full article is set to publish tomorrow. If I publish it today, the link will remain forever broken since WordPress dates all their stuff. It was an oversight on my part and I am sorry for it. Check back after midnight and the link should work.
